Ryan Tannehill Won't Likely Need Surgery

It's likely good news for Miami Dolphins fans and quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

NFL.com is reporting the starter will undergo a benchmark MRI today, but all indications are the partial ACL tear is healing well with strengthening and rehab exercises.

He won't need reconstructive surgery.

His MCL recovery is slower than expected, but he should be fine for the season.

To help promote healing further, sources say Tannehill may fly to Germany for a Regenokine procedure.

That's where blood is taken from a patient.  Platelets are separated, and then re-injected into the knee.Because of the seriousness of the injury, Tannehill will likely wear a brace for the remainder of his career.

Tannehill suffered the knee injury during last month's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
